May 11 is Mother’s Day. What does a child away from her mother can do to commemorate Mom? Well, my Mom is in the Philippines, and I must admit that it’s always been a challenge selecting a Mother’s Day present for her. Even for other occasions, it’s been a daunting task deciding what to send her.
This year, as we celebrate Mother’s Day, my Mom will be a recipient of a Large Basket Arrangement of seasonal flowers through 1-800-flowers.com. They deliver to the Philippines, and it’s good that hubby is a loyal patron of 1-800-flowers, we will not be looking anywhere else. My mother-in-law will likewise get her yearly Mother’s Day present from us. In as much as my husband is not a big flower giver, as he adores 1-800-flowers.com’s gift and food baskets, it’s on Mother’s Day that I solely decide the kind of flowers for my mom-in-law. She’s already been accustomed to her annual Mother’s Day flowers; and gift baskets on other occasions. Pretty predictable, huh?
Every Mother’s Day, after I call my mom; we proceed to my in-laws for dinner. Our annual flower gift almost always becomes the center of attention, as 1-800-flowers always delivers the freshest and most alluring selection of flowers. Not to forget the fact, that they deliver on time. Oh, and they even have a contest this year dubbed: Celebrate Mom For Who She Is. Over $30,000 in prizes are at stake.
This year, I can’t wait to see my mom-in-law’s reaction to my pick: the Pleasantly Purple Spring arrangement of roses, carnations and lisianthus in a lavender pitcher. I know 1-800 flowers never fails, that’s why we have made them our ultimate source of unique Mother’s Day presents for both our Moms.
